I think the new designs and revamping of the WikiProject look very good. I'll try to expand the main page if I can think of some more things to put. :)   jj137 (talk) 03:39, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

That's always good. :) When I created WP:SOX, I never would have guessed how popular it would become, but then again, it's the Sox.   jj137 (talk) 03:45, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
This page? It wasn't that hard, I just copy-and-pasted the Red Sox all-time roster and made some additions/subtractions.   jj137 (talk) 03:50, 26 May 2008 (UTC)
No, I actually didn't even know about that site.   jj137 (talk) 03:56, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Admins unblocking themselves

No! No unblocking themselves. Admins do have the technical measures to do that, but if they do, they'll almost assuredly lose their adminship. Useight (talk) 05:10, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Sorry to shout, "No!", but I saw that Razorflame had responded incorrectly about a very important point and I had to make sure the matter was set straight. Useight (talk) 05:13, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedian Times

Hi. The first issue of the Wikipedian Times has just came out, and your userpage has been chosen as the featured userpage. Congratulations. Visit the page at WP:TIMES and please subscribe. Thanks. SimpsonsFan08 talk Sign Here Please and get Award 20:57, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Just saw your message Re Wikipedia Times

The "wikipedia times" was deleted earlier today in an MfD. So no, there won't be an award. If you can't see it, he listed your name for something-or-other random and common, it was I believe gaining rollback rights. Read the MfD for further info. Gwynand | TalkContribs 02:11, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Or maybe it was a "featured userpage", I forget now, I admit. Gwynand | TalkContribs 02:12, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

I just noticed the MfD. I didn't read it thoroughly yet. And yes. it was "featured usepage". I guess I was chosen to have a good user page. Anyway, thank you for telling me, Gwynand. Best, RyRy5 (talk) 02:25, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Test Wiki block?

Were you blocked too? Basketball110 My story/Tell me yours 02:48, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

What do you mean? -- RyRy5 (talk) 02:53, 27 May 2008 (UTC)


Without a doubt, and not just that section. Should not be more than one link to the same item in the article (or in a long article, one per section). I wouldn't link the dates myself either. Note that some of the headings are over-capitalised too jimfbleak (talk) 06:45, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Having said that, if the dates are delinked, date preference won't work, so maybe keep that? jimfbleak (talk) 06:50, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
LOL, looks better, but the headings are still over-capitalised, should only be capped for first word, years (on their own) shouldn't be linked --jimfbleak (talk) 07:47, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
Looks good now much more readable. Are you planning to get it to GA - needs fully referencing if so? --jimfbleak (talk) 08:05, 27 May 2008 (UTC)


Yes, there is an award. However, the Wikipedian Times was speedy deleted on request of me, the author. I still see fit to give you a userpage barnstar because its so great.

Great Userpage. And a Great User. SimpsonsFan08 talk Sign Here Please and get Award 08:03, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
Hey, thanks! :) Do you mind explaining how/why I'm a "great editor", and why not, do you mind explaining why my user page is "great" also? -- RyRy5 (talk) 08:18, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
Well, there are some userpages that have no more than 100 words on. Yours is designed really good. SimpsonsFan08 talk Sign Here Please and get Award 08:22, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
And what about the "great editor" part? --RyRy5 (talk) 08:23, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
Well, thats just an extra because you also help out at the help desk. SimpsonsFan08 talk Sign Here Please and get Award 08:25, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
I suppose that's all good things to hear. Thanks for the barnstar. Regards, RyRy5 (talk) 08:26, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Oh, thanks. I was going to add it but that yellow bar popped up and what do you know. :) -- RyRy5 (talk) 08:51, 27 May 2008 (UTC)


WikiDesign is a new project i'm doing with admin, PeterSymonds. If you wait an hour or two, it will be ready. SimpsonsFan08 talk Sign Here Please and get Award 10:22, 27 May 2008 (UTC)


Oh. Are you in America or something. It's 11:30 in the UK. SimpsonsFan08 talk Sign Here Please and get Award 10:25, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Of course you can help. I'm putting guides for helpers and a requests desk etc. Check back later. SimpsonsFan08 talk Sign Here Please and get Award 10:29, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Capricorn (manga)

Your closure of this AfD after only ten hours, and after you yourself had registered an opinion in it, was unacceptable. I suggest that you read WP:SK and WP:NAC, particularly the first bulleted item under "Inappropriate closures" on the latter page. I'm not going to contest the result, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone else did. Please don't do this again; there's no harm in letting the AfD process play out for a reasonable period of time.
